Truck is turning 10 (officially a classic according to my insurance) and Im just 5 oil changes away from joining the Chevy 200,000 mile club. Im the Original owner and it hasnt seen a shop for anything more than computer diagnostics in just over 3yrs (since the warranty dried up). Though its limped home a few times Its only left me stranded twice and both were due to fuel pump failures. Sometimes it feels like ive got a second job as a shade tree mechanic as i service the vehicles of my family and a few friends. Ive learned alot doing all the work myself (chiltons and Internet is invaluable) im really pround of my recent accomplishment, thus the new monkey wrench avatar. I tried mudding for a short time but quickly stopped as i didnt like the hapazard style of driving or the wear and tear on the truck. I prefer sand and hit the un-maintained part of the beach every once and a while just to burn up some gas. recently its seen only highway though. Its by no means a show truck due to shopping carts and various bruises, but it looks alot better than most other vehicles of the same age. Yea, It'll Beat a Hemi! only pics i have prolly 2 1/2 yrs old.
